My Critique

I chose these traits in my Rubric because you must possess traits to be successful in telling a Digital Story.

 

Digital Story evaluation: 10 points each
Digital Craftsmanship Command of the media? Was the use of media appropriate, supportive of the story, balanced and well considered? This short video was entertaining and inspiring to many students at DC21. The command of the media was strong and this was evident because it maintain and engaged the attention of high school students. The media was appropriate and taught the students that they could achieve in their life if they put effort into their passions. The story was balanced and gave the perspective of a variety of artist and  what they hoped to accomplish with the presentation.

Points: 10

Audience Engagement How well did the story capture and keep audience engagement? Was the level of interactivity appropriate to the story being told.  

Great! This video Ted Talk was engaging  to students (which can sometimes be challenge) This video was appropriate to expand the horizons of students and by increasing their opportunity to view new and  interesting material.

Points: 10

Originality, voice, creativity How creative was the production? Did the presentation exhibit an original sense of voice and a fresh perspective?  

This a very creative show and the dancers put a tremendous effort into their craft and building their skill-sets. The sense of voice and  fresh perspective was awesome and it was great to see how new talent and technology is increasing the competitive landscape of dancers.

Points 10

Conclusion

I really enjoyed this video clip and the students were engaged as well. Many of the students showed an interest in Dance and  all of the students exhibited a desire to become more proficient in their life dreams and aspirations.  

Final score 30/30. I highly recommend this video to any teacher who is interested in showing a motivational Digital Story to their students and also teach the importance of chasing goals and becoming the best we can be!
